Unearth Spectrobes on the Nintendo DS

Attention, all planetary patrol officers. Disney Interactive Studios just released the first set of Spectrobes into the galaxy, so be on the lookout! You must unearth, awake and nurture these prehistoric creatures on the Nintendo DS to save the universe from the villainous Krawl.

Disney Interactive Studios will be releasing details and images for sets of four Spectrobes creatures leading up to the game's availability on Tuesday, March 16.

Forms -- There are three forms for each Spectrobe based on their growth. Typically, Spectrobes are acquired by excavating them in fossil form and then awakening them into child form. From child, they are evolved into adult form and their final stage, which is called evolved.

Attributes -- Spectrobes are creatures of light, and light is often represented by red, green and Blue. Corona is red, Aurora is green and Flash is blue.

Each Spectrobe has only one of these attributes. The important thing is the power relationship between these:

Corona is strong against Aurora.

Aurora is strong against Flash.

Flash is strong against Corona.

Here are the profiles of these newly released Spectrobes:

Inkana is a guard type Spectrobe. He fuels himself with energy derived from magma. His hard fossil-like shell serves as excellent defence against attacks.

Form: Child

Weight (lbs): 39

Grilden may be a velocity type Spectrobe, but he has awesome attack power. His body blades can plow through groups of enemies and his Hurlicane attack is nasty.

Form: Adult

Attribute: Aurora

Length (feet): 6.8

Gekikro has great speed in the sky and is also a master of magic. He's also a recovery Spectrobe. He's excellent at hand-to-hand combat and is a well-balanced, loyal ally.

Weight (lbs.): 970

Samurite is one of the most reliable Spectrobes. He has an imposing air and great determination. The crescent swords attached to his arms can mince most anything.
